Grabbed some takeaway from Lemongrass and it was delicious! I had the Tom Yum soup w/ chicken and a Green Curry w/ Beef. I thought the price was reasonable until I tried to eat all of the food - the price was wonderful! Try as I might, there was no way I was going to finish off everything I ordered... More

Ordered take-away one night while in Sydney. Hadn't had pad thai for ages and was disappointed as it wasn't very flavorful at all. I thought it seemed expensive but in reality there was enough food for two, maybe three in one order. Perhaps it's better when you eat in but I was not impressed with the takeout.

Having been to both countries it is great to taste food that is honest to those places. Great curries, great value. I look forward to returning, if I lived closer I would get there more often.

Had a group dinner this week at lemongrass and was impressed. Fairly simple menu nothing fancy. Great prices considering its a stone throw from darling harbour. We sat out the back in an outside courtyard with bamboo walls, nice little place for a small group to enjoy a meal. We had a range of dishes and everyone of them was... More

I work close to this place and most of the other places to eat around the area are a bit too expensive for a typical work lunch. I like the court yard in the back. A nice place to chill out when you want to separate yourself from a hectic work day. The lady at the front is very helpful... More

This restaurant has a great undercover area out the back of the restaurant for dining which you cannot really see from the street. The food is very fresh and beautiful. The owners/chef are very happy to make changes to the dishes. The restaurant has no license which is good because you can BYO anything you want (including beer and spirits).... More
